Reimagining School Readiness Workshop
June 29, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Do you wonder what research really says about how to support school readiness? How can you help families prepare young children for starting school?
The Reimagining School Readiness Toolkit is a suite of research-backed resources created for library staff to help families prepare children ages 0 to 8 for success in school and in life. Through an online, interactive session with hands-on activities, this training will introduce library staff to the research, practical implications, and resources offered in the toolkit, which is available in its entirety for free online.
This workshop will include:
· key findings from current cognitive and developmental psychology research,
· the implications of those findings for library staff’s daily work,
· practical, ready-to-implement ideas for activities, and
· resources for staff training and for parents/caregivers.
This workshop will be of interest to all library staff who work with children ages 0-8 and their families/caregivers.
The 4-hour live, online workshop will be offered twice this summer:
Tuesday, June 29, 2021 | 10am – 2pm (includes breaks)
